Knowledge (heavy) lifting, hoisting, rigging and specialized transport

Have you ever worked on a project and had a hard time, always seeming to reinvent the wheel? Many project managers will struggle with items that could have been covered in a review of lessons learned or knowledge data base. By means of sharing available knowledge of (heavy) lifting, hoisting, rigging and specialized transport Hadimpro intends to help project managers and those who are on the lookout for specific knowledge. Knowledge sharing is the process of passing knowledge from one person to others. Knowledge covers a wide range of topics, such as information, processes, best practices, lessons learned, skills, and expertise. Whenever you are in search of a specific subject, or struggle in finding an answer, always feel free to send us an e-mail.

  • Lifting


    Lifting is an activity during which the load is lifted in a controlled and guided manner, normally spoken from the bottom of the load, e.g. by means of a Fork Lift Truck, screw jack, rack jack, hydraulic jack, toe jack, lifting bag, etc.

  • Rigging


    Moving a load horizontally, vertically or at other angles and possibly through different floor levels, by use of different lifting and hoisting equipment. Lifting and hoisting equipment being divided in lifting and hoisting appliances versus lifting and hoisting accessories.

  • Hoisting


    Hoisting is an activity during which the load is suspended and hangs freely, e.g. by means of one or more crane, chain hoist, lever hoist, hoisting portal, beam clamp, winch, floating sheer leg, strand jack hoisting system, etc.

  • Specialized transport

    Specialized transport

    Transport of heavy, abnormal and oversized objects by means of specialised transport equipment such as Self Propelled Modular Transporters (so-called SPMT), conventional modular and multi axle transporters, skidding techniques, heavy industrial roller sets and heavy duty roller skates based on endless chain techniques.
